Can I use my own cable to power the device?

No, you can't — and here's why.

On the back of the device there are two ports — the left one is for power.


Though it looks like standard USB 3.0, you will not be able to power the device using a regular USB 3.0 cable.

The thing is that the power port in HUDWAY Cast uses a custom pinout — and while you can plug in your regular USB 3.0 cable, the device will not power on: HUDWAY Cast needs 12V to operate, and standard USB cables will only supply 5V

We recommend that you only use the cables that are supplied with the device, otherwise if any damage to the device occurs as a result of using a non-original cable, this will not be covered by warranty.
